To allow you to enjoy your favorite movies while on the go, with the high quality that only Blu-ray discs can offer but without the pains of carrying a BD player and a bunch of discs with you, is the TDMore Blu-ray Converter’s main aim. This attractive conversion tool supports all the most widely used video and audio codecs, including new H.265 (or HEVC), which guarantees high-quality and size-friendly transcodings of your high definition Blu-ray discs.
Sharing the same attractive and intuitive interface that all the newest TDMore products offer, TDMore Blu-ray Converter allows you to use Blu-ray discs, Blu-ray folders, and ISO archives as a source for conversion. The program will show you all the media streams included in the Blu-ray – video titles, soundtracks, subtitles, etc. By default, the program will show you the main feature in the disc, enabling you to choose the audio and subtitle streams that better fit your preferences.
Once you made your pick, you can move to the output format selector. Here you will find a tab to store your favorite output profiles, as well as two other tabs showing all the formats supported and organized by device and codec. These output formats cover all the most popular ones in the portable device market – AVI, FLV, MP4, etc. – including some well-known 3D video formats. Audio codecs are also very well represented (both lossy and lossless), and you can use them to extract any of the audio streams in the disc and save them in a format that your portable device can use (MP3, WAV, FLAC, M4A, AAC, etc.).
Those with less knowledge of video and audio codecs – or simply not too sure about which format is best for their smart phone or tablet – can rely on the program’s extensive list of device-based output profiles. Apple, HTC, BlackBerry, Nokia, Motorola, LG, Samsung... they are all here, and you will find specific profiles for specific tablets, video boxes, and phones within each brand. Regrettably, not all of them worked for me. Except for HTC, BlackBerry, LG, and Motorola devices, I wasn’t able to convert my Blu-ray movies into any of the other profiles provided. The same is true for some video codecs, such as plain MP4, AVI, M2TS, or MKV. However, the “Passthrough” and H.265 versions of the same codecs worked like a charm. MKV.H265, MP4.H265, 3D MP4.H265, or M2TS and MKV Passthrough produced excellent results in a very reasonable amount of time, and the luxury of having your Blu-ray discs transcoded using H.265 standards is nothing short of a major advantage.
Except for this drawback, TDMore Blu-ray Converter can still be considered one of the best Blu-ray conversion tools out there in terms of simplicity of use, flexibility, and high-quality output.
